Cook ground beef in pan using medium-high heat for 9 to 10 minutes, breaking into small chunks with back of spoon until browned and completely cooked. Drain in colander. Return to pan and add onion and garlic; simmer, uncovered, for 5 to 10 minutes until vegetables soften.

Mash kidney beans. Combine with beef mixture; stir in chili sauce. Place 1 tortilla on baking sheet. Spread right to edge with one-third of the beef mixture. Sprinkle with one-quarter each Cheddar and green onion. Repeat layers, finishing with tortilla, cheese and green onion.

Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Slice into wedges and serve with more chili sauce if desired.
